On Thursday 15th March there is a NZEI teachers’ union meeting that starts at 1.30pm. Many of our teachers will be going to this meeting.
The school will stay open for the afternoon on the 15th March but we will only have a small number of teachers remaining at school during the meeting time.
Your children can stay at school for the afternoon and we will continue with their learning programmes but if you are able to pick your children up, or they could walk home early on this day it would be a great help to us.
Patrols will go out at 12.30 and again at 3pm and SKIDS after school care will operate as normal.Most importantly we need to know what you decide to do for your children. Stay or Leave. We have sent a form home with your child, so you can return it to let us know what you decide. If we do not get a reply, your child will stay at school.

A short film made by The National
Library of New Zealand about Viscount School's library:
“Viscount Unlimited” - Learning begins
AT LAST we are able to use
our new learning environment!! Although the journey to
get this project completed has been a long one, the
result is STUNNING! Now we are all charged with the task
of making some very special learning happen there. Four
teachers have moved in with their students – Ms. Shew,
Ms. O’Dwyer, Mrs. McEwen and Mrs. Gayford, and all are
very excited by the challenges and possibilities that
are in front of them. Viscount now has THE MOST MODERN
LEARNING ENVIRONMENT IN NEW ZEALAND, something we are
very proud of and excited by. Please come along to
school anytime and have a look through the new building,
and see what students are already doing there.
With new buildings opening and being used and classes being moved around you might want to look at this conversion [new rooms]
